Can we just talk for a minute about this amazing snack I had yesterday? I mean, like seriously the best thing ever. Are you ready? Have I built up enough suspense? Are you totally dying to hear what I’m going to say? How about an iphone edited Instagram photo instead? (side note – I’m obsessed with Instagram. You have to get it. You can also follow me @whitlikesfit, but be careful. You might find yourself turning all your iphone pics into fancy vintage shots).
What is that you ask? I’ll tell you…
Apple Cinnamon Greek Yogurt
All you need is 1 non-fat plain greek yogurt cup, a bunch of cinnamon and an organic apple.
I considered chopping up the apple into the yogurt but I was a little lazy so I just stirred the cinnamon into the yogurt, chopped up the apple (yes, I store a sharp knife in my desk) and then dipped the apple slices into the yogurt. I wish I could share taste with you through the internet but because I can’t, you need to trust me when I say that what I tell you here is the truth :) You need to try this. I will admit this was an amazing apple. Super sweet. It wasn’t a pink lady but something similar and I’m sure that helped with the sweetness so if things are still a little sour for you then add a tiny bit of honey. It’s kind of like a creamy apple pie. Yum. I will be having it again this afternoon.
To be honest, the above snack was the most exciting thing that’s happened to me in the past 24 hours hahah. Dinner was leftover BBQ chicken pizza and a strawberry salad. My workout yesterday was a pilates reformer class, 30 minutes on the elliptical (varying between levels 7 and 15!) and then I did a 5 minute wall-sit! I didn’t mean to sit that long but Boyfriend by Justin Bieber came on and embarrassingly enough rocking out to that song (in my head, my body was pretty static) helped carry me through.
This morning we got up and hit the gym before work. I ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill (my knees hate me by the way), 25 minutes on the elliptical doing 1 minute intervals between levels 7 and 12, 15 minutes on the rowing machine and this 3 times through with very little rest between (wearing a short dress to the wedding this Saturday and need to get my legs in shape):
- 20 squats (20lb)
- 20 deadlifts (20lb)
- 20 step-ups (each leg)
And then I brought bags of ice back to my desk and held them on my knees while simultaneously holding the phone with my other hand and talking on a conference call. Multitasking at it’s finest.
Do you guys ever do wall-sits? My family is crazy and we would have wall-sit competitions to see who could do it the longest. Try it and see how long you can hold it for. Here’s info on how to do a proper one. Key things to remember – knees over toes with a 90 degree bend in the leg. This video says you can put your hands on the wall or your thighs but I always keep my hands out in front of me or clasped. For an extra challenge hold a medicine ball in front of you or over your head :)
